Tips for scraping VK

  • Make sure you're only scraping public groups, as scraping private groups is against VK's terms of service.
  • Use proxy to avoid getting blocked by VK.

Note that personal data is protected by GDPR in the European Union and by other regulations around the world. You should not scrape personal data unless you have a legitimate reason to do so. If you're unsure whether your reason is legitimate, consult your lawyers. We also recommend that you read our blog post: is web scraping legal?.
